A Baby Is A Baby Is A Baby
(Psalm 139:14-16 NASB)
I came across a very interesting link the other day that I set aside for my Miscellaneous Monday post that I never got around to posting. Sorry about that (not really). I noticed, however, that there was a vague, undefined irritation that came over me as I looked at the pictures. It was only after a few days of thinking that I realized what the problem was–abortion.
The Gosnell trial is moving along and more and more disturbing information is coming forth. Babies are murdered and the nation shrugs. The new issue out in talking-points-land is what do we do when a baby is born who was supposed to be dead? Baby struggling in the water of a toilet? No big deal. Apparently if you are unsure what to do with parts of a murdered baby the answer is flush them. Of course, that should not even be discussed since the baby isn’t supposed to die by the hands of people at any stage of his life, but hey, I am small-minded that way.
When you look at the pictures of these various animals in utero (never knew this term was two words and no idea why WordPress doesn’t recognize utero as a word) you have to marvel. Amazing photos that testify to the amazing work of our Creator whose wisdom and power is manifest in so many subtle ways. But as you look at these baby animals, who are somehow recognized as animals, not just lumps of tissue, allow a bit of rage to circulate as well. For none of these bear the image of their Maker, while countless millions of little image-beaters are cast into dumps and burn bags.God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. (Genesis 1:27 NASB)
